Re: For everyone who can't read the Phone Book!

They tell me that I have to have proof from a
doctor, and that's $30 or $40 or more just to
have him tell me I'm blind!!! I'm on MCI, and
they're not local, anyway. Don't know if they do
this or not, but this is handy to have in case
one needs  it! Thanks anyway, definitely
appreciate it.
